Course objectives
At the and of this exercise a student will be able to cite conditions for assignment and processing of bachelor work, which is determined by institute and clinic responsible for education of related bachelor studying program. Student proves orientation in citation literature norms, which are used in bachelor work. Paced bachelor work the student will present to study dean department to registration according timetable of academic year. The leader and opponent of the work will develop the reference for bachelor work defense. The student must be introduced to work reference at least three days before the defense. The defense of the bachelor work is the content of the state final exam.
